The main character is still customisable right? Kinda silly having him front and centre of the box art.

Personally I would have emphasised the galaxy roaming aspect with the star chart and Normandy as the main images, then have the two main sidekicks smaller and a silhouette representing your own character. Give it a sense of scale.

Edit: if you can customise your face, why did they put that face on the cover??

Not exactly a classic, is it. Looks very low-budget.

Hm i think it's nice looking. But hey: i don't really buy a game because of it's boxart, to be honest^^'.

Looks alright. Nothing special.

I have KOTOR here right in front of me and it's very similar, if a little better.

Kick ass. Beats blue dragon's hand down =P.

Not bad although I have two dislikes so far.

i'm not the biggest fan of the orange glow behind the main character, i would have preferred it to be tinted blue like the rest of the background, almost hurts my eyes =P. Oh well.

And lastly I liked the regular White text with blue lining around it, I'm not a big fan of the Gold and fade out on the text blah.

Maybe i'm being too critical but I do like the background, with all your teammates and creatures along with the spaceships on the sides and they eyes make it more of a serious game. Looks decent on my opinon =D

You read my mind! Absolutely the orange bit looks out of place.

I wonder if the CE will look the same
Commented on 2007-01-23 21:22:23
It's ok. The eyes in the background remind me of the old-school ninja gaiden art.
Commented on 2007-01-23 21:26:34
I never found myself buyin a game because of its box art!!!!! lol

Still i think it looks just about right!

the orange Glow is a bit much maybe ....but who Cares

On second thought I think the boxart looks pretty ugly =P
Commented on 2007-01-23 21:47:38
Ooh man, I just want this game ......... CAN'T WAIT(!)
Commented on 2007-01-23 21:48:47
Don't like it to be honest. Something more simple a la Crazy Taxi, Final Fantasy etc was needed for this game. I think this may just be for Americans and they may change it slightly for the Euro audience.

Could be better, but I couldn't care less about the box art.
